Pop goes the culture

The Oklahoma History Center plans to celebrate a past you don’t get in history books.


Features

Joshua Kline
The common perception of popular culture as it relates to Oklahoma is often limited to cowboys and Indians, red state politicians and the occasional writer, artist or performer who managed to escape the grip of the Bible Belt and now rarely, if ever, returns home.

The Strangers — The Strangers


Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
The last we heard from Moore emcee Jon Tefic (formerly Methotrexate), he had put out the stellar Camelpacks & Battlerapz, a smart full-length that acted as a tribute in equal parts to A Tribe Called Quest and Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All. Half a year later, Tefic is back, but with producer Shawn C at his side. Meet The Strangers.

Game Change

Sarah, we hardly knew ye ... which is exactly the point.


Drama

Rod Lott
Nearly every scene of the made-for-HBO Game Change, I recall from John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's excellent nonfiction book of the same name. But the movie directed by Jay Roach (of the Austin Powers and Meet the Parents franchises) tells only half — maybe even just one-quarter — of the story, ignoring the 2008 presidential-campaign narratives of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards for the one it finds most compelling: that of Sarah Palin and John McCain, and not the other way around.

Joshua Boydston

Birdemic 2: The Resurrection

What the flock?!?


Thriller

Rod Lott
For those worried that Birdemic 2: The Resurrection doesn’t match the awfulness of the 2010 original, know this: The first five minutes are of its ostensible leading man walking. The first exchange of dialogue: “Hi!” “Hi.”
